If you have the Dell recovery CD for your model Dell computer then boot up with this Recovery CD in your computer and follow the on screen instructions.
If you do not have the Recovery CD for your model Dell then -
You can get the Recovery CD from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Once the factory reset has happened all unsaved data is lost. There are software programs that help recover some data on a computer but bot so much for the phone. Google "data recovery" and you'll have a number of choices.

Lost all settings, programs, seems like computer is reset

the original settings? you mean all your programs are factory default? if that's the case it sounds like you did a factory reset instead of a restore point. you can't do that unless you're in the recovery screen. please advise

How to restore your computer to factorysettings without a disk?
If original andfairly new: While Booting Up.

Dell XP = Ctrl+F11
Dell Vista = F8
Compaq = F11
HP Desktop Vista = F11
Emachine = F10
Acer = Alt+F10

Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come withdisks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever putanything on the recovery partition d:, if you used d: for anything you need toremove what you put there or the recovery will not function.(As soon as yourcomputer is turning on press the F10 key and it will take you to the systemrecovery screen, click on the advanced option and click Destructive recoveryand click next. WARNING: before doing this backup anything on your computer youwant to keep pictures, videos, music etc. This will delete everything that didnot come pre-loaded from the factory, so if you have pictures of Aunt Fae'sClass reunion you should probably back those up if you want to keep them.)

I went beyond the "System

There are "file-scavenger" types of programs.
Compare it to tearing the table-of-contents out of a book; this does not mean that all the pages in the book go "blank" -- it just means that you have to read the book, page-by-page, to find each page, and to "chain" pages together into chapters.

So, a "file-scavenger" program will try to read each sector of your disk-drive, trying to "recover" those "lost" files.

Stop using your computer, so that you don't overwrite any of the "lost" files, and use another computer to search online for "file-scavenger" programs -- some are free, and some are commercial.

I want to reset my laptop to factory settings? How do I do this?

Do you have the restore disks? If you put the restore disk in your disk drive you should be able to follow the steps to reset to factory settings. When I did this to my computer, I chose the box that said "Restore computer to out of the box state"

BEFORE you do this, you should back up any text and image files that you want to keep. After resetting, your files will be lost and you will have to reinstall any programs or files that did not originally come on your computer.
